As most people who read my blogs know, I shoot commercial work in between my big expedition style shoots.  Here’s some photos recently taken for Surftech in Yosemite National Park.

Stand up paddle boarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation.  But what I wanted to show with this photo shoot is that they aren’t just for the extremist.  You don’t have to paddle into big waves, and you certainly don’t have to do what my friend Hobie does and paddle your board off of waterfalls and down rapids.  Sometimes, it’s just a good way to explore otherwise difficult to reach places.
